The September Asthma Peak - What is It?
Sunday, October 1, 2017
Here are some good reminders, for both children and adults, during this season and throughout the year:
-Identify and avoid your asthma triggers
-Have an appropriate treatment plan for allergies, one of the most common triggers of asthma symptoms
-Make sure your child’s Asthma Action Plan is current and provided to the school
-Take your asthma medications as prescribed, even when you feel well and your asthma is controlled
-Wash hands frequently, eat nutritious meals, and get plenty of rest
-Get a flu shot (all family members)
-Visit your allergist for regular asthma check-ups to maintain good control. As children grow, medications may need to be adjusted.
